On Campus Student Parking
On campus parking is available for juniors and seniors. Students who wish to drive to school must first properly register their vehicles by submitting the Student Parking Application along with all documentation and paying fee online. A parking spot will be assigned. See section 9.2.5 of the Family Handbook for further details.
The majority of the front parking lot at the Redmond Campus Main Building is reserved for parent and guest parking. During morning drop-off there is additional parking available behind the Main Building. Parents may also park in the gravel lot by the Farmhouse. There is limited guest parking at the Upper School Building. There is ample parent/guest parking at Valley Campus.Questions? Please contact Dave Gordon (firstname.lastname@example.org).
